The Simple Way To Keep Up With Technology
Keeping up with changes in technology is a challenge – especially for busy parents like us who are already juggling a more than full-time workload. If you’re working to stay afloat financially, ferrying your children all over the place, managing a household, and maybe trying to stay fit and/or fit in time for your partner, it’s no surprise you’re wondering how to find the time to fit everything in!
I’m a ‘super-mum’ too – or at least trying to be 🙂 I get where you’re at. I’m also not particularly “tech-savvy”, especially compared with my kids (who are currently 6 and 9 yrs old). Although I’ve improved from my previous status of refusing to join Facebook or make any attempt to understand technology!
Over the last couple of ways I’ve got a lot smarter in terms of keeping up with technology, at least as far as it relates to keeping my children safe and sound when they’re online. And I want you to be able to keep up with it too – enough for your children to be safe from the online risks they face every day.
There’s a simple way you CAN keep up with it all, as I explain in this short video:
Why Join The Peaceful Digital Parenting Membership?
There are plenty of reasons to join this membership, but I think the most valuable is to be part of a community of like-minded parents, who are all going through the same thing as you, and who all want to help each other.
Sure, there are free parenting groups online, but here’s the thing: to a large extent you get what you pay for. Even though the cost of joining this group is very nominal, the fact that it’s not free means that the quality of people in the group is way higher than you’ll find elsewhere online.
The philosophy of this group is that it’s not about parenting criticism – there’s plenty of that online and it’s really not very helpful! It’s about parents having a safe place to share their experiences with other parents in a way that helps everyone. And here’s the best bit: you can get help and advice from others in the group confidentially – they don’t need to know who’s having the issue. After all, you may not wish to broadcast that your child has become addicted to online gaming, or that they’re the subject of cyber bullying.
Other Benefits Of Joining
Our members gain a lot of benefit out of the other two main features of the membership.
Q&A Recorded Video
Each month I send you a video I record where you’ll hear about what’s been happening over the past month that you need to know about. The video usually runs for about half an hour. An example of some information shared includes how to avoid your children from sharing inappropriate images of themselves online, as well as new online trends your children may already be aware of that can put them in danger. It’s also an opportunity to have your questions answered in detail, as close to face-to-face as it gets.
When you join you also get access to all previous videos, and they’re set up in a way that you can easily pick and choose to listen to the bits most relevant to you. All of the information has been well-researched and will go a long way towards helping you protect your child online.
Our newsletter is popular with members because of the information it contains. I don’t believe in information for information’s sake – who has time for that? The newsletter reviews and recommends useful sites and apps for your children to visit, as well as those you probably don’t want them to use. There are general safety tips that have arisen in the previous month, and we share stories from parents that may be very useful for you. If you have a story to share you can also be featured – pretty cool!
And like the videos, you also get access to previous newsletters. There’s a wealth of information there but there’s no need to be overwhelmed by it, you can read as much or as little as you like, all in your own time.
